PRESIDENT HILL SEES PRACTICE
Bluck Tackles Dummy So
Hard That Its Leg is
The Tigers and the all-class-team
lined up against each other last night
and had one of the hardest scrimmages
seen on Rollins Field in several days.
The teams worked hard and fast for
twenty minutes and at the end the
score stood 5 to 5, neither side attempt
ing to kick goal after touchdown.
Before the Tigers went into the scrim
mage they spent about half an hour
at the tackling dummy. More time
would have been given to this work
had not Bluck torn a leg off the dummy,
in tackling it. The Tigers then ran
through fast signal practice.
Gilchrist Runs Signals.
The work done by the 'Varsity was
good, considering that the men are still
sore from Saturday's game. The same
program wil be gone through this even

Gilchrist was out running signals but
did not take part in the scrimmage.
President Hill watched the practice
last night for an hour and seemed to
be well pleased with the work done by

"Missouri isn't beaten by any means."
Those were the words of Bert Ken
nedy, the Kansas coach, when he return
ed to Lawrence yesterday morning after
the fine victory of his team over Ne
braska's highly touted aggregation, says
the Kansas City Star. Kennedy is right
Missouri isn't whipped by a whole lot
and Missouri will not come here with
a team that will be easily whipped. The
Tigers have played their schedule and J
the time between now and next Thurs
day will be spent in whipping the men
into better physical condition and per
fecting the team play.
Physical condition will be a big fac
tor in the Thanksgiving game. At the
final whistle of the Kansas-Nebraska
game the Jayhawkers were as fresh as
when they started. In the last half of
the Ames-Missouri game the Tigers were
"all in." The Tigers displayed great
form in the first half, and with a fair
amount of the luck of the game would
have scored two touchdowns. The Ames
line was torn into threads. But in the
last half the Tiger ginger was gone.
Player after player left the game and
'some of them were carried from the
Of course, even the best conditioned
athlete is subject to injury in football,
but injuries are few and far between
when a teamjs in as perfect condition
as was the Ames aggregation. Had the
Tigers been physically capable of play
ing the ball in the second half that they
did in the first the story of that game
would have been quite different. The
Tigers have had two hard games since
the Ames test and the' now have nearly
two weeks for conditioning. If the Mis
souri team is not in almost perfect phys
ical condition a Kansas victory will be
Missouri Has Several Stars.
Individually the Missouri team looks
better than the Kansas eleven. Driver
and Nee, the Tiger ends, look better
than Pleasant and Rice. To be sure,
paper dope in football is the same as
in baseball, frequently amounting to
nothing, often being double-crossed.
Anderson and Bluck of the Missouri line
are individual players who will make
the Kansas line step lively. "Tubby"
Graves is a demon of the Carlson type,
only the Missourian is a bigger athlete
than the Kansas center. Ristine, the
Tiger center, will have more than his
hands full in holding the speedy Carlson.
But Ritine has a reputation as a fighter.
Deatherage had the edge on Johnson
until the Nebraska game. The form
Johnson showed in the victory at Lin
coln gives evidence that Deatherage will
not have the quarter back honors all to
himself. In the back field Kansas will
hae the advantage in that Kennedy has
developed two complete sets of backs.
However, Missouri will not lie a great
way behind in this respect. Monilaw
has developed several extra back field

men who loom up as big as any of the
Kansas backs. When Wilder went into
the Ames game late in the second half
he tore great holes in the Iowa line. The
Tiger rooters wondered why he had not
been inserted before. Then, too, a look
at the Missouri line-up against Wash
ington shows that the Missouri coaches
are using two sets of backs. Wilder
and Ewing were used at full; Alexander
and Cook at one half and Grain and Sig
ler at the other. Alexander will bear
watching in the game next Thursday,

son with any member of Kennedy's back
When Kennedy sends in his new back
field to batter away at the Missouri
line the Tiger coaches will substitute
practically a new line and one almost
as good as the regular line. In Barnes,
Carothers. Gove and Roberts Missouri
has a substitute line that is as good as
K. U's sub back field.
This point must not be overlooked.
While Kennedy has been developing two
sets of baeks Monilaw has been tire
lessly working out two sets of linemen.
And that the second set can go some
was shown in the Iowa game when three
regulars ornamented the side lines.
Verily, Kennedy had the right hunch.
"Missouri isn't beaten yet." Xext Sat
urday Kansas tackles Iowa. The score
of that game may be compared with the
Missouri-Iowa score and the football
follower who cons over dope can draw
new lines on the strength of the Mis
souri and the Kansas elevens. Kansas
should win from Iowa by a good mar
gin, but the dope may run as it ran in
the Nebraska-Kansas contest, where the
Cornhuskers were given the big edge.
Iowa may surprise Kansas. Anything
is possible in football. Then the Jay
hawkers will descend on Kansas Citv for
their annual game with Missouri. And
if the Tigers come here physically fit
and play together there -will be one
grand game of football on the gridiron at
